C, the boys, Michelle and I had a wonderful day in that we enjoyed time with our host family, David & Lala (they're related to Michelle's Uncle and we feel that in a short time, God has begun knitting our hearts together and they may as well be family), time playing together, and going on a leisurely walk.
It was on said walk that the Lord reminded me of a very profound concept. It was as though I could once again take a deep, relaxing breath. Have you ever felt overwhelmed? Like when there's SO much going on in life that you can't see straight? If I can be transparent for a bit- that's us right now. Yes, we're ECSTATIC about being here in Peru right now going through this final leg of the adoption process, but there's so many things coming down the pike that it's getting to be overwhelming if we spend time thinking about it. Back to this profound concept, WAY back when my family lived in Mexico (when I was a young lad), I heard a song and the lyrics have stuck with me all these years. Coincidence? Nah- Providence!
Give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine
So for my sake teach me to take one day at a time."
